Which of these is more likely to kill you: a shark or a photograph?

At least 11 people have died this year while trying to take a selfie, according to a Wikipedia page that tracks media reports of selfie-related injuries and deaths. At least 11 people died while trying to photograph themselves in 2014, according to the list.

By comparison, just three people were killed in shark attacks last year, according to statistics from the University of Florida’s International Shark Attack File. An average of six people a year have died from shark attacks in the decade to 2014 and Mashable reports that eight people have been killed in shark attacks so far this year.
